Beovu Lawsuits For Vision Loss, Blindness, Other Eye Inflammation Conditions
In a rush? You can use our Quick Contact Form to tell us the basic information about your case.
Beovu, prescribed for the treatment of neovascular (wet) age-related macular degeneration (AMD) since 2019, has been associated with vision loss and blindness due to occlusive retinal vasculitis, retinal artery occlusion, and intraocular inflammation. In turn, Beovu lawsuits might be filed against Novartis, the manufacturer of Beovu, alleging this drug company failed to adequately warn doctors and patients about these Beovu side effects.
Beovu eye-related side effects include:
- Vision Loss
- Occlusive Retinal Vasculitis
- Retinal Vasculitis
- Retinal Artery Occlusion
- Intraocular Inflammation
- Eye Inflammation
Our law firm is investigating possible Beovu lawsuits where patients have suffered Beovu side effects.

From the Abstract for this August 2020 JAMA Ophthalmology medical journal article, “Retinal Vasculitis After Administration of Brolucizumab Resulting in Severe Loss of Visual Acuity”, we get the following five facts concerning a Beovu retinal vasculitis case report:
To read more of this article, click below:
- A 77-year-old woman had acute visual acuity loss in her right eye following her second administration of [Beovu (brolucizumab)] for neovascular age-related macular degeneration.
- She had previously been treated with both [Avastin (bevacizumab)] and [Eylea (aflibercept)] since her initial diagnosis in 2018. She had never had any intraocular inflammation with either medication.
- Her baseline visual acuity was 20/50 OD and 20/30 OS.
- She initially noted blurry vision immediately after her injection with [Beovu (brolucizumab)] but believed it would be temporary. She presented to the office 3 weeks later, on her return from a cruise. Her visual acuity was 20/200 OU.
- Her left eye was unremarkable.
Beovu was approved by the FDA in 2019 for the treatment of neovascular (wet) age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Since then there have been reports of Beovu-associated vision loss and blindness due to occlusive retinal vasculitis, retinal artery occlusion, and intraocular inflammation.
We will continue to monitor the medical literature for reports of retinal vasculitis with Beovu use as well as cases of acute visual acuity loss involving Beovu.[View article in full at original source]
